For a contemporary cool edge to your favourite loungewear sets, simply add a chunky boot.

Heels for a date are so pre-pandemic, don’t you agree? Instead, a knee high pair of chunky boots create a sultry aesthetic, especially when worn alongside a mini knit dress…

Replay Black Leather Chunky Ankle Boots – £59

Whether for work or play, a chunky heeled boot adds a subtle-yet-playful drama to your outfit. For an evening out or Saturday brunch (bottomless, of course), you’ll be onto a style success with a midi skirt, fitted top or jumper – dependent on the weather, of course.

Scandi chic

The key to dressing like the always inspirational Scandinavians is structure. Make your boots the secondary focus of your Scandi-inspired look, instead shaping the ensemble around a wide leg pair of trousers. This khaki Oliver Sweeney pair speak to a theme, bringing an understated-yet-considered flourish.
